為甚麼美國保守宗教人士希望最高法院審理同性婚姻時會考慮其他國家的做法?

Conservatives have often criticized the liberal wing of the Supreme Court for considering the decisions of foreign courts when interpreting the U.S. Constitution. But on the issue of same-sex marriage, conservatives who want the court to exercise judicial restraint in redefining marriage may find themselves hoping, just this once, that the justices will take a cue from other nations.

On Tuesday (April 28), the court will hear arguments regarding the right of states to define marriage. Both advocates and opponents of same-sex marriage alike — expect the court will likely hand down a historic ruling that will legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states. In not stopping lower courts from striking down state citizen-led constitutional amendments limiting marriage to a man and a woman, the justices sent a sign that a sweeping ruling lies ahead.
